This was a tough Weirdness Wednesday day until I ran across the National Hollerin’ Contest. It was started in 1969, temporarily halted in 2016, then restarted. Not sure if it’s still going as some say yes and some say no. According to this site, it’s still being held in Spivey Corner, North Carolina – http://business.clintonsampsonchamber.org/events/details/national-hollerin-contest-09-12-2020-4584. This article said it ended in 2016 – https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/05/us/hollerin-great-big-story-trnd/index.html. This article had it moved to Hope Mills – https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/josh-shaffer/article100047757.html.
Wikipedia says it ended in 2016 – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Hollerin%27_Contest. I found a somewhat dead link with a reorganizing note – http://www.nationalhollerincontest.com/ that was on Wikipedia. Wayback Machine has a record of the site – https://web.archive.org/web/20150313004119/http://www.hollerincontest.com/. This was last updated in March 2015 with no newer entries since that date.
